Look North

How we Started

In November 2016, the Manitoba Government announced the co-chairs of a new task force to lead the development and implementation of a northern economic development strategy. The named co-chairs of the strategy were: Onekanew (Chief) Christian Sinclair of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation and Chuck Davidson, president and CEO of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.

In February 2017, the Look North Task force was busy preparing for economic summits, roundtables, and other opportunities to engage Manitobans as they worked toward creating the necessary environment for sustainable economic development in Northern Manitoba.

The Provincial Government announced the next phase of the Look North Strategy and encouraged visitors and investment in Northern Manitoba, a region rich in both resources and opportunities.
